See Savannah by Trolley!

This summer, our family took a day trip to Savannah, GA while we were staying in Hilton Head, SC. To get to Savannah from Hilton Head is quick, in about 45 minutes, and an easy drive. Prior to heading out, I researched all the places we wanted to see and found one of our favorite companies to tour through – Old Town Trolley Tours! Old Town Trolley conducts tours in several cities and we have used them in Boston and Key West and found that their tours are affordable, easy to use with great on/off privileges, and the drivers are a wealth of information! I can’t recommend them enough.

It was no surprise that our experience in Savannah was just as great as in Boston and Key West. We arrived in Savannah and had free parking for the day, purchased our tickets, and began our tour all within about 20 minutes. We started off at the Visitors Center which is easy to get to and has ample parking. We purchased the special Girl Scout package since my daughter wanted to see Juliette Lowe’s house and that package included our admission. There are other packages available that will give you admission to attractions along the trolley route, so check those out in advance on the site.

The best thing about a Trolley tour is that you can use that as your transportation all day around to all the sites you want to see. You hop off at the stops you want, skip the ones you don’t, and when you are ready to move on you wait for the next trolley to show up and back on you go. The wait is never long and it allows you to take your time and enjoy the sites that you specifically want to visit and gives you time to just “wander” around and stroll through the various squares.

We used the Trolley tour this time to visit Juliette Lowe’s birthplace, had a nice lunch at The Pirate House, and got a great orientation tour of the Savannah area for when we head back down the next time. There were several places we wanted to see, but the heat of the day and our desire to take it relaxed, we just hit the high points for us this trip. We did have a stop towards the end where there were some fountains that kids were playing in, so we hopped off and let the kids play in the fountains and cool off for a bit. It was a great break from the heat of the afternoon.

We concluded our tour at the Visitor’s Center where we began. We then decided to walk over to the Railroad Museum as that was a true highlight for my son. Stay tuned for a post on that amazing place!
